Sweet 16 Lines & Picks

We have 8 games over the next 2 days. The Sweet 16 is very chalk heavy this year, so this should guarantee some tight games and good matchups. I asked a couple buddies, aka the 2 Garys, what they thought for each game. I’ll include my picks as well. For the record, one of them is a diehard UK fan, the other is a Duke fan. And yes, they’re good friends. Sometimes sports unifies people regardless of their team. It’s called living with class.

There you have it, picks from 3 different sports fans. Are we experts? Nope, but we do pretty well on a regular basis when gambling. These lines will more than likely move a little before each game tips off. They may also vary from one book to another. I got these from VegasInsider and used the Westgate Superbook lines. We have 4 great days of basketball ahead of us as the season winds down. Enjoy it, gamble wisely, and good luck.
